Thanksgiving at the Eleanor Whitmore Center

To get into the Thanksgiving holiday spirit, Erin Albanese’s pre-kindergarteners had a pre-Thanksgiving feast around a long classroom table. The children enjoyed turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, corn, and macaroni and cheese prepared by class parents.

An Adventure with Purpose at Sag Harbor Elementary School

Sag Harbor Elementary School fourth-graders recently took part in a full-day, outdoor Project Adventure program that provides students with the necessary tools to challenge themselves, communicate and problem solve. During the program, all fourth-grade classes were placed into groups and tasked by teachers to work together in solving a variety of hands-on challenge activities. After navigating the activities, students reflected on their respective performances, focusing on the positive, including their favorite challenges.
